An Australian study may be used to block adoption of MMJ in England and could derail US efforts.  Just what we did NOT need.  Let's find the problems with this study to argue back against it.  Its all over the press so better to have eyes wide open here.  I am NOT advocating the merits of this study - quite the contrary - I'd like to find the weaknesses to shoot it down.

Ankylosing spondylitis resulting in fusion of entire cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and SI joints, osteoporosis, 5 compression fractures, severe stenosis of spinal cord & nerve root compression, cervical myelopathy, radiculopathy, bruise & permanent deformation of spinal cord, incomplete spinal cord injury, postlaminectomy syndrome of cervical region, chronic nerve and orthopedic severe pain, and bilateral carpal tunnel. Asthma, GERD, high blood pressure, high tryglycrides, diverticulosis, recurrent pneumonia, anemia, hypertension, chronic dry eye and mouth. Need hip & knee replacement and fusion of both feet. Already had 11 surgeries including 5 orthopedic & 1 neurosurgery.

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

This study as they call it provides absolutely no compelling evidence to believe the rest. I’d have to see the empirical evidence, how it was performed—-double blind study??? It’s just inconclusive and highly bias slanted.

I’m not impressed or concerned. Too much evidence to the contrary so I am not concerned.

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.
